Quoted from Hunted: The Demon's Forge Reviews:Check out these quotes from Hunted: The Demon's Forge reviews & previews
"You can clearly envision what the pitch for Hunted: The Demon's Forge sounded like: "It's the depth and addictive replay ability of Diablo, but with the visceral camera and controls of Gears of War." On paper, that doesn't sound half bad. But with an abundance of broken elements, and a notable lack of polish on the ones that do work, the game comfortably settles for mediocrity. The story revolves around a pair of mercenaries that traverse the standard litany of fantasy environments in search of the Mayor's daughter. If you think that plot sounds like Final Fight with magic missiles, you'd be right. Unless you are a Lucy Lawless aficionado, the story will most likely bore you. Even the most diehard of fantasy fans will groan at the pure barrage of clichés and stereotypes that appear at every beat of the campaign. And for a game that hinges on cooperative play, the relationship between the two leads might just be the weakest aspect of the story. At its best, their banter is acceptably pithy. The rest of the time, it's a mute-worthy affair, with your given partner either sexually harassing you, or mocking you for not being able to find your way out of a poorly designed labyrinth."
"I recently sat down with Matt Findley, president of inXile Entertainment, to play and discuss the studio’s upcoming hack-and-slash action game, Hunted: The Demon’s Forge. “Fanta..."
" Publisher Bethesda's upcoming hack 'em-up Hunted: The Demon's Forge could be a real treat. It looks lush, it's got a nice sort of "Gears of War in loincloths" feel to it, and the two characters play very distinctly from one another. And best of all, once you've head-chopped your way through the main storyline, you can keep satisfying your urge to cleave flesh from bone with The Crucible. It's a dungeon creator with a slick, easy-to-use interface and just enough depth - you can quickly make your own murderbox just the way you like it, but without having to worry about minutiae like how many torches to put on the wall or where the pile of skulls should go. Then, you can either play it yourself, bring a friend into your custom-crafted nightmare, or upload it for the world to suffer through. I mean, enjoy. I am totally not thinking of this as some sort of sadistic fantasy fulfillmen ..."
" For a game ostensibly about cooperative play, Hunted: The Demon’s Forge never capitalizes on its own premise – two fantasy badasses working together to slaughter hordes of monsters. The basic ingredients are there: Caddoc, the cautious but beefy human, is melee oriented while (sigh) sexy female elf E’lara plies her trade with bow-and-arrow. There is even a hint of truly imaginative co-op powers... ..."
"We team up for some good ol' fantasy action adventure in this upcoming cooperative game from InXile. "
